I encourage others to boost this status and all the posts that end up beneath it to get as wide a spread as possible.
Not sure if this will even work, but I feel like I should at least try.

You read the right books: it works.
"Oh, I don't know anything about magic."
) "Did you-- were you pointing the wand away from you?"
) "Did you try dispelling and then summoning it again?"
) "Did get the patch update scroll?"
